Since 27 August I have been participating in a Twitter project to Tweet daily about the Psalms in canonical order – the order in which they appear in the Old Testament.
The next fourteen Psalms are attributed to David. It is interesting that the Psalms are not arranged in chronological order.
Where I had coloured a page or a postcard from the Images of Grace by Jacqui Grace published by Just Cards Direct, I have added a photo to the tweet.
Ps. 22: A prophetic psalm which speaks about Jesus Christ & events around his crucifixion & his kingship.
Ps. 23: Perhaps the best known of all the psalms. God takes care of us always.
Ps. 24: God created and owns the earth. How to approach him and letting in the King of Glory are themes
Ps. 25: David turns to God for instruction, guidance, deliverance, forgiveness, protection and redemption.
Ps. 26: David compares his life (trusting God) to the scheming of wicked people and praises God.
Ps. 27: God protects David (and us) from the fear of enemies. Praise and music result from life in God’s presence. Follow him!
Ps. 28: Plea for God to hear&be merciful to David, to punish the wicked. Song of praise for God’s answer&empowering protection
Ps. 29: An exhortation to ascribe glory&strength to God.The nature of his voice described. He is the source of strength&peace.
Ps. 30: Healing&mercy,anger&favour are God’s. David’s despair&wailing become joy, dancing, song thanksgiving.
Ps. 31: Verse 5 written by David was spoken by Jesus Christ and St Stephen the first Christian martyr as they died
Ps 32: Forgiveness & freedom from guilt are blessings from God to those who confess their wrongdoing. Rejoice!
Ps. 33: A song of praise to God the all-seeing creator. His unfailing love is our hope.
Ps. 34: Another prophetic psalm. None of Jesus Christ’s bones were broken, unlike those of others crucified.
Ps. 35: David asks God to fight his battles for him. He prays for (and against) his enemies. Praise and thanksgiving to God
With the character limit on Twitter, some of the Tweets are rather compressed. Other participants’ contributions to the project may be found using the #Psalmtweets hashtag on Twitter. (Or simply click on the link in the previous sentence!)
